Forum: feature_films Subject: Copyright question about 'The True Glory' and a few others

Hello,
Does anybody know if these are okay to upload?

The True Glory (1945)
Documentary film about the D-Day landings, made as a co-production with the U.S. Office of War Information.

The Old Dark House (1932)
I have read that, like 'The Ghoul' this was partly lost for a while. Did it have it's copyright renewed? I have looked on the copyright office page, but to be honest I find it all quite confusing!

Don Juan AKA Don Juan ou Si Don Juan ├ętait une femme (Roger Vadim 1973)
The dubbed worldwide version of this Bardot film.

A Kid for Two Farthings (1955)
Cauldron Of Blood (1967)

Thanks in advance.

The Old Dark House is still copyrighted. You can only check for copyright at USCO for movies made in 1950 and thereafter.

I found that to be so But why is it? I remember seeing recently "Murders in the Rue Morgue" uploaded here, and obviously it didn't stay up for long, but it seemed clear to me the guy who uploaded it didn't know any better. I think USCO should make information on ALL films accessable, regardless of when they're made. Why they don't do that is a mystery to me. Is there another source of info for the older films, 1949 and earlier. I know the old Universal monsters are copyrighted and likely always will be, so I don't need to look them up. But what about the more obscure material that's out there?

Thanks chuncha,
You can get 'Kid for two Farthings' on a DVD label that releases a lot of PD content. That's why I wondered if it was okay. This stuff is all a bit daunting for the novice!
